Who said salads have to be boring and leave you wanting for “actual food”. Salads when made right are a powerhouse of protein, healthy fats and fibre.
According to the University of California San Francisco, a high-fibre diet appears to reduce the risk of developing various conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, diverticular disease, constipation and colon cancer. Fibre is important for the health of the digestive system and for lowering cholesterol. Women need around 25g of fibre everyday while men need to consume around 35-40g of fibre a day. Despite this we often end up never meeting the required amount of fibre needed by our body.
